Change of Plans…but in a good way!

Well yesterday I was in Fort Smith at Tyler’s shop (which looks amazing these days….take a look!) and he was preparing to go race dirt bikes today in the middle of nowhere. But….a friend called and said the track was washed out and dangerous and hard, so he decided he wasn’t going anymore.

So….he came back to Fayetteville with me! 🙂 We saw Blind Side last night. The best movie! I hope I would be that type of woman to stand up for someone who needed love and help.

We came back here and had some quality time, and now we are about to go get some breakfast and clean the apartment. I am so thankful for a gentle, sweet fiance who helps with the housework! He is going to do the dishes and dust while I do laundry and pick up.

On another note…three months from today, I will get a new last name! Yup….in three short months I will be married! 🙂 Also exciting! Have a wonderful Sunday!


Done, Son.

I am done with Quant. I got an A. PTL.

Somewhere in between the stress of finals, this cold weather, and other stuff…I’m feeling a lil blah. I got teary eyed reading some old messages on facebook from friends. I don’t really know why. I don’t think I’m sad…but I’m just tired and ready for a break.

I have 2 finals to give, and 2 group things to finish. A busy couple of days before I head home Tuesday….but I can do it. Easy, breasy.


No Motivation

I am one final, one paper, and one group project away from finishing my first semester of grad school.

There is one problem. No motivation.

I need to make it through my study guide for my Quant final exam tonight…but I would rather watch the gingerbread competition special on the food network (that I think I have seen before! haha).

Tyler always makes fun of me for watching things multiple times. I can watch the same shows over and over again because I notice different things, and I usually do several things at once….like write this post and watch TV, so I miss stuff the first time around.

Anyways, back to no motivation. I just want to go home, be with my family, do wedding stuff, and hang out. I don’t want to study or test. But whatever. I know I have to do all of it. And it will get done. But know that I don’t wanna.


Mixed Ramblings

There is so much going on, and so much on my mind, sleep doesn’t seem good anymore. Just tossing and turning all night (hey! thats an old 50s song!). I will get to sleep over Christmas break…which is so close now.

We have our first marital counseling session Friday- I’m really excited. Tyler’s pastor, Bro. Ronnie, who is marrying us, is so nice and full of wisdom. He is a great communicator of the word of God. And I feel like he really values and understands communication- so I like him even more!

This weekend is my shower at OBU. I can’t wait to see my friends and spend some time with them. Its weird not being with them all the time, and to think that season of my life where I had close friends within an arms reach 24/7 is over. I miss those girls. I hope people come to my shower. Its kind of like being a kid and wondering if people will show up to your birthday party.

Well, I must get ready for my loooooong Wednesday. Teaching, office hours, quant homework, class, teaching, 3 hour class, going to see Tyler (weather permitting).

At least we will FINALLY be turning in our huge quant paper today. What a burden to turn it in….praying for an A!
